Up We Go: Creating a new pathway to TMC Emergency

A new entry boulevard is partially complete, and is already carrying traffic into the Tucson Medical Center campus at the intersection of Grant Road and Beverly Avenue. Two-way traffic has been restored as vehicles use newly installed pavement at Grant and Beverly.

Now, work begins on rebuilding the remaining old roadway and parking spaces.  The area directly in front of the main TMC Emergency entrance is temporarily torn up, so all foot traffic for the west end of the hospital is using the side entrance just past the main Emergency door.

Emergency Department access will always be maintained via the side door just north of the temporarily closed main Emergency doors.

New parking spaces for patients and visitors are now available in the improved parking lot in front of Emergency, and access has been improved to the new 600-space parking garage just to the west.  Right in front of the temporary Emergency entrance, visitors can pull into a patient drop-off area, or use the FREE valet service, available seven days a week.

These final phases of road work will create a direct path for patients and visitors who will use the new TMC Orthopaedic and Surgical Tower, opening next spring with patient rooms, orthopaedic clinics, and advanced high-tech operating rooms.
